Omar Epps, from classics like “Juice” and “The Wood” took to Instagram to share his hidden vocal skills. He took to Instagram and belted out none other than Jodeci’s 1993 hit “Cry For You.”

He is mostly known for his talent in front of the camera, however, some people don’t know that Omar Epps has a history of doing rapping and songwriting on the side.

In 2014, he rapped on a song along with Brooklyn rappers Papoose and Saigon called “Sinner’s Prayer”. The song was featured on Saigon’s 2014 album, G.S.N.T. 3: The Troubled Times of Brian Carenard.


Omar Epps also was featured on two songs on rapper Sticky Fingaz 2003 album Decade: …But Wait It Gets Worse, the songs are “I Love Da Streets” and “What Chu Here For”, which also featured artists Rio and Detroit Diamond.

Omar Epps was also featured on a song with DJ Spinderella of Salt n’ Pepa called “If You Believe”. The song was on the soundtrack for the 1996 film Kazaam which starred then NBA star Shaquille O’Neal.

He even released a mixtape in 2004 called The Get Back under BKNYC records. The album featured songs such as “We Made It”, “How We Does That”, and “Bed-Stuy”.

But it doesn’t look like he’s giving up acting anytime soon. Last month,  Omar teased an upcoming collaboration with Larenz Tate and Mekhi Phifer.

“Been hard at work trying to create something incredibly special for all of you! We’re one step closer… Stay tuned….”
